|Radio Event No. 7: Junk and All that Jazz|
A lengthy aural montage of interviews and monologues on the topic of “junk” mixed with snippets of jazz music and live in-studio chatter and listener phone calls to KPFA. Under the direction of composer Anthony Gnazzo, his text-sound composition was played on the radio during one of KPFA’s groundbreaking listener participatory Radio Events. Chaotic and fun, this sort of adventurous and experimental programing was typical of the anarchistic artistic world that was Berkeley during the late 1...

This paper provides a framework for developing an approach to understanding soap opera's appeal as a direct function of both the genre's form and of its fans' viewing behavior. The paper suggests that while this analysis is largely critical, other studies from both critical and social scientific approaches can be based upon the framework and assumptions developed here.
